Companies working in harsh environments must protect their workforce from potential hazards, which may cause serious harm if not carefully managed. Because of this, it is vital to identify any risks that may cause injury and take precautionary measures to ensure safety at all times.
One way to take control of your organisation’s safety is through the use of safety tagging solutions. At REGALTAGS, we understand the tough environments our customers operate in, so we provide only the most durable and reliable tags, which have been developed for long-term use.
We’re proud to achieve this through many factors, but hugely responsible for the success of our tags is our Prism Polypropylene.
With many of our tags manufactured from Prism Polypropylene, we thought it would be useful to explore its benefits and explain why it’s the ultimate material for all things tagging.
So, if you’re interested in learning more about the material responsible for our long-lasting tags, continue reading on. Here’s our guide to Prism Polypropylene.
What is the REGALTAGS Prism Polypropylene?
Our Prism Polypropylene is a unique material designed to withstand harsh environments anywhere around the world. It’s produced without using water and with zero harmful emissions. It is a strong, hard wearing material which is chlorine-free, 100% recyclable and contains no harmful additives.
Manufactured for REGALTAGS specifically, our material is used to create long-lasting tags whilst being environmentally sustainable too.
The benefits of Prism Polypropylene
- UV protected – Due to the material's protection against UV rays, tags made from Prism Polypropylene remain reliable even after prolonged exposure to sunlight.
The damaging power of sunlight on Tags is underestimated by many; the UV rays have a photochemical effect within the polymer structure of the tag and can cause colours to fade and the material itself to break down and crumble apart.
Where cheaper, less durable materials will become unreadable when exposed to sunlight for too long, our Prism Polypropylene has no trouble. This ensures you do not lose any critical information during maintenance and/or lockout procedures.
- Freeze-resistant – When operating in harsh environments, the weather can cause all sorts of problems for your tags.
Just like the sun can make them fade, freezing temperatures can cause them to go brittle and break under pressure.
Thankfully, our Prism Polypropylene is completely freeze-resistant, giving you peace of mind that your tags will work when operating in cold environments.
- Eco-friendly – Not only is REGALTAGS Prism Polypropylene 100% recyclable, but it’s also 35% lighter than traditional plastics. This helps to cut transport costs and emissions for a reduction in carbon footprint.
